This Nordia Geographical Publications theme issue explores the intersection of the far-right and the environment through a spatial and a geographical lens.
The new wave of far-right parties, movements, and individuals have transformed Western politics since the 1980s and have recently also gained global prominence. What are the spatial ontologies of the contemporary far-right parties and movements and what role does the environment play in them? What role do geopolitics, borders and territories play in the far-right’s environmental agenda?
Whilst it is important to understand the far-right’s movements’ ideologies and politics, even more crucial is to develop resistance strategies. As such, the theme issue also encourages contributions that examine anti-fascist geographies in times of surging far-right and intensifying ecological crises. How can geographers best act and collaborate beyond the academy in building anti-fascist and anti-racist ecological futures?
We welcome articles and interventions from academics and activists that examine the geographies of the far-right and anti-fascism in any spatial and scalar context.
Preliminary title and abstract deadline is 31.3.2022 and the manuscript submission deadline is 31.8.2022.Read more about Call for Papers - Political geographies of the far-right: The environment, space and resistance
